The update from Saint Catherine Hospice includes 24-hour patient care to provide comfort and mental support. Their goal is to reduce stress for everyone involved in an end-of-life situation, including praying, socialization, and attending to mental well-being.

Modern medicine has found ways to deal with chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Therefore, the number of Americans over 85 years of age is growing rapidly, and by 2030, those over 65 years old will make up 20% of the population. At some point in each of these lives, hospice care may become a necessity.

Hospice care normally begins when a patient has a life expectancy of six months or less and the patient has elected to stop treatment. It is important to note that all Saint Catherine Hospice services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid, and most major insurance carriers.

Dedicated care specialists provide this unique type of medical care. In coordination with the patient’s doctor, they will help manage symptoms, provide palliative care, and improve the patient’s quality of life.

Counselors will work with individuals and families to help them deal with grief and support them through this process. Social workers and chaplains will help the patient and family members cope with stress and stay spiritually strong during this time. Volunteers are also welcome and can register on the website.

Saint Catherine Hospice was founded by Catherine Maduka, CEO, and serves Dallas, Tarrant, and Kaufman counties. They can provide services in their dedicated Dallas nursing facility, in an assisted living facility or nursing home, or in the patient’s home.

A family member said, “They are compassionate and helpful. The emotional support Saint Catherine has offered, as well as the expert medical care, has been very important to our lives.”
